One year. Ten conversations.

You set the agenda. 


The Bristol Urban Forum is a one-year listening project with the aim of recording how Bristolians want to see the city change over time. 


The project will explore ten themes relating to Bristol and the challenges our community faces. Each topic will be the focus of an interactive event at Sparks, Broadmead. Everyone is welcome.


At the end of the year, a summary of each conversation will be published online and made available to local authorities as a ‘Place Manifesto’. It is our hope this document will guide decision-makers and give everyday people a seat at the table.


Whether this is your first time contributing to a placemaking project or you have professional experience in this area, we want to hear from you.


For our activity to be equitable and representative of Bristol’s vibrant society, we are keen to hear from those individuals and communities who have historically been neglected from the conversation. This includes but is not limited to ethnic minorities, women and girls, neurodiverse people and those living with a disability, and LGBTQIA+ folks.
